White Hart Hotel

About White Hart Hotel


If you're organising a Christmas party in St Albans, whether it's for colleagues, friends or family, we know it can be tricky to find a venue with capacity, expertise and catering options, that's just right for your festivities. But, in the heart of St Albans is the White Hart Hotel - a stunning coaching inn with centuries of history dating back to the 15th century, a lovely events space and host of bedrooms.

The enthusiastic team are welcoming Christmas bookings and excited to host you in the main restaurant which can be set up for a sit-down three course meal around a central table with capacity for up to 45 people. Another option is to go for a laid-out buffet with casual seating, which offers enough space for up to 120 people. 

With ornately-carved wooden wall panelling and ceilings, as well as huge, period windows and wooden flooring, the space is brimming with character. You are, of course, welcome to decorate with balloons, tablecloths and festive motifs, and the venue boasts an event planner who will happily chat through options and help you make the most of the space.

All catering is provided in-house and the team usually create a few options to suit different tastes and budgets. While at Christmas-time courses will no doubt reflect the food of the season, you can check the website for an example of previous options, just to get a feel for what's to come. We like the sound of wild mushroom soup with truffle oil to start, alongside duck leg with puy lentils with diced smoked pancetta, braised savoy cabbage and jus for mains, and desserts like sticky toffee pudding with toffee sauce and vanilla ice cream. 

One of the best things about the White Hart Hotel is the selection of boutique bedrooms, perfect for guests travelling from a little further afield or to make a weekend of your celebrations. Chat to the team about booking bedrooms alongside your event and they'll be happy to help.
